The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.

Allen West: Get Out of the USA, Democrats

In this Crooks and Liars post from January 30, Allen West has proposed that Democrats like President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Debbie-Wasserman-Schultz should...but I'll let the man speak for himself.


Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, and take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.

Nice touch, Allen. On the bright side, there are hints that West may fall victim to redistricting, carried out by Republicans who, some of them at least, are becoming increasingly embarrassed by this asshole.


Allen West will save the nation

Democrats and their taxation

Must get out of here tomorrow

Sparing us from further sorrow

Go to Europe or the bottom.

Of the ocean where your rotten

Way of thinking will be useless -

Get the hell out of the US.
